- Policy Implications 2
These are compelling findings, because it shows that the world has changed or rather it shows that the stereotypes we believed in for so long, have finally been shattered. While these results do not necessarily encourage any particular shift in public policy, in a sense they do encourage us to focus on constituent concern and if either party is to gain more support, it will be through its changes to policy, to law.
If I were a Republican strategist, I would use this trend in the following ways–I would emphasize what our tax policies and job growth programs are doing for Middle America. I would then shift the focus to lower income households and how these programs could benefit them as well. I would encourage the use of smaller words and easily understood yet loaded slogans. I would follow the Trump approach of being a media darling. Utilizing these is a surefire way to ensure the ensnaring of the middle class.
If I were a Democratic strategist, I would be horrified at this trend and utilize a full shift in focus. If we want the middle class back, then we must be seen as their ally again. We must be seen drafting bills that would help them economically as well as socially. We must dial down our politically correct rhetoric whilst not losing it completely. We must utilize modern media, including social media, as the amazing marketing tool it is without seeming like we are a sixty- year-old grandmother facetiming for the first time. If we are the party of the youth, let’s get some young candidates out there.
As we saw in the 2016 election with Colorado switching from red to blue, and as stated above, we must research further into the root cause of this.
We urge all politicians to consider this research carefully before the next election cycle. We ask that they follow through with our recommendations and know that we welcome any inquiries about our research.
Policy Implications 1
The history of voting in the United States is fraught with inequality. From the time the framers constructed the Constitution to the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the right to vote was not given to all denizens of this country. Initially, only white, male, Protestant landowners were allowed to vote. After the 13th Amendment passed, abolishing slavery, it took years before another amendment granted voting rights to Black men. Although they had the right to vote, it was seldom practiced because of voter intimidation and criminal behavior by whites who refused to acknowledge the rights of Black men. At this time, no women were granted to vote. Women achieved suffrage only by protest and activism in 1920 through the 19th Amendment—and still, Black women were not given the right to vote. Voter suppression continued through 1965, when Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law; however, it did not end the practice of limiting rights to people of color. Further, the protections afforded in the Voting Rights Act were curtailed in a 2013 ruling by the United States Supreme Court in Shelby v. Holder. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing in the dissent, stated the folly of this ruling, indicating that you “do not throw out your umbrella in a rainstorm, because you’re not getting wet.” In other words, our history shows that voter suppression will always require a fight.
Although women of color were the last group in the United States to obtain the right to vote, they are a reliable voting bloc. Women of color voted in droves in the 2016 election for the democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. In this particular election, women of color—particularly Black women—formed multiple voting PACs that not only encouraged new voters, but strongly encouraged a huge election turnout. More strides were made in this election for women of color than ever before in that a Black woman is now the vice president, Kamala Harris. Clearly, voter education leads to better participation and a more equal and representative picture of our country’s electorate.
United States Senators from New Jersey, Robert Menendez and Cory Booker, who serve a diverse population in the Garden State, should introduce legislation that promotes better awareness of civic issues and voter education. At least one semester of high school education should be put aside for civic courses—all of our country could use a class that makes students aware of real voting issues and the choices they will face upon turning 18. There is so much misinformation about voting on social media, that it is imperative that we address this on a high school level.
We urge Senators Booker and Menendez to follow through with our recommendations and we welcome any inquiries about our research.
We compared the results of the 2020 Presidential Election by per capita income. Using government statistics, we divided the results of the election into two data sets, known as “Red States” and “Blue States.” The Red State set denotes those states in which citizens voted for Donald Trump and the Blue State set denotes the states in which citizens voted for Joseph R. Biden. These blue and red data sets contain per capita income information.
Using Excel software, we analyzed the economic status between the two groups by conducting a comparison of means (t-test) test.
